Best present everI bought this for a Christmas present and it is the best present and smoke we have ever had. With a large family, this smokes perfectly no matter what is inside, ribs, salmon, cheese, beans, roasts, even hot dogs and sausages. I with there was a way to add chips without burning fingers but otherwise, best smoker, yet!

Poor designWas given this as a gift after my 5 yr old $149 smoker wore out. This smoker did not produce enough smoke to get a ring, or a good crust on a brisket. 13 hrs should be plenty of time. Also a propane hog. Old one did a much better job. Returning to store for a better cheaper model like I used to have.

Does what it saysI got this smoker for Christmas. Looked online at several makes and models of smokers and decided this was the most economical. I have been smoking meat on a Master Forge charcoal grill and, despite reviews complaining of smoke leaking around the lid and poor craftsmanship, I enjoyed smoking indirectly on mine (still have it and use for grilling). The only problem was there wasn't enough room when cooking for a larger crowd, so I was looking for something bigger.
My youngest son and I put it together in a little less than an hour. This included laying out all the parts, reading over all the instructions first (not very manly, I know), and then stopping for some general father/son talk. One thing I noticed on some older reviews was how people turned the unit upside down as a part of the assembly and the doors fell off. I guess they've added Step 1A because it reads, "Remove the doors..." I used a Craftsman cordless drill with the clutch set on 10 and made fairly quick work out of assembly.
After assembly, I seasoned the smoker per the intructions. Because of other reviews I had read, I went ahead and bought an oven thermometer. This particular model had a small wood chip tray. Others beng reviewed showed a round chip PAN. This is where some had placed a round skillet to hold wood chunks (one guy suggested lava rock and placing wood chunks on top). All of this was done to combat flare ups. However, with this model, the chip tray didn't flare up. Smoke lasted about 30-40 minutes and I could easily add chips (Get a pair of heat resistant gloves-- much better for doing this). Unless you remove the water pan, I'm not sure there is enough room to put a skillet in order to use wood chunks. There was some smoke leaking around the door, but it really didn't amount to much. The flow of smoke from the bottom through the top vent was extremely sufficient.
I've never cooked with gas before -- grill or smoker, so I wasn't real sure what to expect. The outside temp and wind play a much bigger role in this unit than what I was accustomed to on the charcoal grill/smoker. I was able to put up a small piece of plywood to keep wind from blowing directly into bottom vent. Top temperature I got to was 275 with outside temp at 45+/-. This was fine since I only wanted 225 for smoking Boston butts. I cooked ribs a few days prior with a warmer outside temp (65 +/-) and initially ran the cooker up to 350. When assembled, I could get it up to 400 degrees with outside temp of 75. All that said, the temperature was easy to control and it held steady at 225 and 250 depending on what I needed at the time.
You can't put meat in this unit, turn on the burners, and walk away. You'll need to check on it for adding wood chips, checking cooking temps, ...etc. There have been reviews upset about having to tend to this. This is not a commercial smoker. It's a metal box with a door, a window, and a propane burner at the bottom. It is not a commercial cooker. If you don't want to spend some time during the cook, you should probably just go buy your bbq and ribs from your local BBQ restaurant.
The is a great smoker for the money!

Love it!Absolutely love this smoker. Assembly was easy, took about 45 minutes. Listened to the suggestions others had on their reviews like using a larger cast iron pan and using wood chunks instead of chips. Glass on the door a plus to monitor the meat. Temperature gauge fairly accurate. Smoker is so simple to use, monitor, and food turns out great!
Per the product manual Do NOT burn wood chips inside homes, vehicles, tents, garages or any enclosed areas. The Masterbuilt 44" Gas Smoker with Window is designed to be used with propane and should only be used outdoors where is it well ventilated. The burning wood chips give off carbon monoxide, which has no odor and can cause death.
